hasn't applied. if it passes tomorrow the boehner rule wouldn't not apply any more. there is a couple of things that guided the republicans in the last two years, or the last decade and that raises the flags for me. but i think it's not republicans that are looking for relevance. i think it's washington as a whole looking for relevance. we're running trillion dollar deficits. and for what would be the fifth straight year and the reality is s&p is downgraded us. they have sent the downgrade possibility sent notice. and we're still acting as if it's still 1995 or 2000 where we aren't running trillion dollar deficits. and but -- i hope it's not the case, but if in the meantime with all of these games as we move around the messaging and try to figure out resequencing and everything. if moon anies follows through the threat that america is not a credit rating -- worthy of aaa credit rating. that's the serious reality. you have the political reality and the economic real fip i hope it doesn't happen. i don't know how long question continue 0 to go on. i don't think we have ten years to actu

. it's actually gotten a little bit harder under speaker boehner who has said -- and i quote -- "i don't feel comfortable scheduling any controversial legislation unless i know we have the votes on our side first." which sounds like he's saying he has to be able to produce a majority of the house out of just the republican caucus before bringing a bill. but whether it's the original hastert rule requiring a majority of the majority before they'll even bring a bill to the floor or what appears to be the boehner rule that they have to have the votes on our side first -- end quote -- it is a rule of obstruction. there are somewhere between 50 and 60 members of the house republican tea party caucus and a whole bunch more house republicans who are scared of the tea party and scared of what might happen to them if they get a tea party primary challenger. so getting a majority of his party together for anything reasonable is a challenge for speaker boehner. house republicans could not get a majority of their conference to support a highway bill. so the hastert rule kicked in, and there wa

boehner states that the president backed away from an agreed compromise on raising the debt limit. in an article in "the new york times" magazine tends to support that charge. and a recent book by bob woodward paints a picture of obama standing firm against john boehner and the negotiations. as the apparent requirement for resolution of major legislation approaches, and as it appears that even more rigid positions are being forecast for the next congress, it will take an unusually skillful second term president to deliver solutions to the financial problems facing the nation. if the task rests on the shoulders of barack obama, wilson would not compromise or will he be like eisenhower, reagan, clinton, and even washington to figure how to win against the odds. of course, to achieve the accommodation with congress, he would need a lyndon johnson, tip o'neill, a newt gingrich to leave the congress majority that would follow. so what specifically would i recommend obama do to attempt to avoid the challenges of the second term? primarily he should point in -- appointing a committee or with

days before the debt limit deadline, i had dinner with sean boehner and saxby chambliss, who'd been close friends and serving together in the house. i share concerns with the speaker and he asked how i get to a better outcome. i couldn't give him a good answer. i had argued to my republicans the week before any default triggered by refusing to lift the debt ceiling really would be the best outcome if we could stick together in weather the storm. i was convinced her deficits had become so severe that are national credit rating would be downgraded anyway and economy to to flounder. the shock therapy of the fall could be a thing that we can congress. unless we stick together, it made little sense for me are new members to mount it, cause he mission to delay the vote and force you to follow. >> guest: first of all, ask yourself the question, when was the last time the debt limit was not increased? so do we have a tip in made in country? the answer to that is the reason were in trouble because we essentially dull. every time i pass that lets you basic, they get a raise. we've never acted

presidential leaders -- leadership come and speaker boehner i think would be supportive, and to get something done. >> i really agree with that. in a curious way, both sides need each other. why do i say that? because the debt limit has to be extended. simply has to be. this is not our future spending. this is about spending that's already been done. the question here is are we going to pay the bills we have already racked up. clearly we have to do that. the consequences of our failure to extend the debt limit would be extraordinary. but to do that you've got to get votes of people in the house of representatives. and they are insisting on additional spending we strength. in fact, we need additional spending we strength. i think of anything is clear from the charts i put up here is we have got to get some additional we strength on the entitlement side of our budget. and so it does lend itself to a compromise, one in which there is additional revenue, not from raising rates, but through tax reform, which happily is something the country needs anyway. does anybody believe this tax code that we'

story of how obama fought back against boehner, cantor and the tea party. is the showdown referring to any specific incident or just politics in general, mr. corn? >> guest: well, kind of both. the book is a behind-the-scenes account of what happened in the white house after the november 2010 election when the republicans and the tea party really knocked barack obama for a loop and took control of the house. and then everything that happened after that. the tax cut deal, the big fights over the budget and the dealt ceiling and deficit -- the debt ceiling, deficit reduction, also the bin laden raid and what happened in egypt and libya. and so i'm looking at how obama made the decisions he made and took -- why he took the actions he took in that very pear rillous time -- perilous time for him politically. but i also explained how this is all done in a way to set up the 2012 campaign that we just went through. he had a theory, after he took that big hit in 2010, he had a theory that he could make the 2012 race a choice not just between him and mitt romney, but a choice between differen

boehner promised peter king and other northeast lawmakers that he he would move the bill quickly of after pulling it from the floor at the last minute in the wake of the fiscal cliff vote that saw most republicans vote against the speaker right around new year's day. >> host: so, eric wasson, do they have the votes then for this next round of relief? >> guest: well, the proponents of the bill say they're confident. of course, we'd expect them to say that. but i think most likely they do. they have at least 14 republican lawmakers from the northeast, they probably have all the democrats. they just need to get, you know, some others, and i think most of the appropriations committee, you know, hal rogers is behind this bill, he crafted it. so there's no earmarks and there's no pork. so i think so. i think some of the minor amendments, stripping the couple million dollars stripped out for weather service and other people view as not sandy-related may pass, but i don't think they're viewed as killer amendments in the senate. the key amendment to look will be one from representative mick
